Closer to 17 than 16, Tiger remained one of the most affectionate, playful and curious cats I’ve welcomed into my family. He greeted visitors with such enthusiasm; let’s just say he would have made a terrible watch dog! My little buddy was a character. In person, or during post-COVID tele-meetings, Tiger never missed an opportunity to tell two-leggeds who was really in charge. Just ask his sister!
When Tiger became ill 2 months ago, and his prognosis was poor, I checked out Caring Pathways, “just in case.” I was delighted and relieved to find our former vet, Dr. Chas Dickens on staff. Time moved far too swiftly, and when Tiger was ready to leave his sick little body, the Caring Pathways team made sure Dr. Chas would be here with us. I still can’t find the words to fully describe my gratitude for the care, understanding, kindness, affirmation and respect Dr. Chas gave so freely. The compassion we received from my first phone call until Tiger’s death made this time one of ease. Thank you all, so very much.
